Bedroom. One of the most important pieces at home! Back in my twenties, I used to study in my bed as a student, and have always had a huge mess of laundry there. Then, as a new mom, my bedroom was buried underneath the pile of baby clothes, diapers and more laundry. Oh, and pacifiers and rubber toys too. So investing in the bedroom of my dreams really had to wait.
Up until recently, when one day I finally realized that it’s been awhile since I had a baby to change and feed in the middle of the night. And that actually, from time to time I do find a minute to read in bed. The only problem was that, my old headboard was a little bit of a DIY project, and didn’t hold that well, so leaning comfortably on it was impossible. Our mattress was getting uncomfortable, and our night stands where cute but very unpractical little tables, too small to store anything. It was time for a change!
And so with a help of Leon’s furniture I finally have the bedroom of my dreams! It’s still small, and it’s simple, but I just love how it turned out!
Here is how it looked before and how it looks now:
So now, this is what I call my mom oasis. There’s a place for books by the bed, and some extra storage for all the things. There’s a comfortable and inviting bed, with a purring cat waiting for me to join.
